Meet the Principal

Meet Principal Dixon


My name is Richard Dixon and I am proud to serve the David Lubin community as school principal. With our relentless commitment to preparing students for tomorrow’s opportunities, it is my privilege to support our dynamic learning environment that fosters critical thinking, innovation, and perseverance through an emphasis on Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math-based teaching and learning.

Growing up in London, I have learned the value of preparing for opportunity and an appreciation of diversity through experiences as varied as working as a stockbroker in London, to teaching English in rural Japan for three years.

Before coming to David Lubin as principal in August 2013, I was fortunate to have the opportunity to serve several city communities as teacher and administrator, and now continue my passion to work with our dedicated team to teach our students to think, innovate, and create.

On a personal note, I have been married since 2000 to Debby, who is a SCUSD teacher. We have a 7th grade daughter. I enjoy vacationing with my family, cooking and eating, and supporting Tottenham Hotspur Football Club.
